“Forever?” She asked.
“Forever.” He answered.
He played with her hair. Twirling it in his fingers, brushing it softly with his hands and then taking hold of great handfuls of it pulling her head back and kissing her throat.
She lay quietly with her head on his chest, listening to his heart beat for her. Her fingers playing up and down his arms and torso.
“We should …” He began.
“Shhhhh, let’s hold on to this moment. Forever.” She replied.
“Forever.” He murmured back to her.
Time slowed and they lived their love, breathing each other in and out. Holding tightly to what they had. Calling out to each other from the passion they held hidden. Afterwards they lay curled around each other, limbs entwined, whispering I love you’s and murmuring their pleasure at being together.
His cell phone vibrated on the table.
“We should …” She said.
“Soon.” He replied. “But for a minute more. Forever.”
“Forever.” She answered, but her eyes began to water despite trying not to show her breaking heart. Knowing that it would soon be over.
“Shhhh, don’t cry.” He kissed her eyes, her cheeks, drank her tears. He became teasing and playful looking for her laughter and smile to return. He held her close and breathed her in as she searched his eyes again and again to reassure herself that it was more than just this moment.
“How do we make this real?” She asked
He kissed her long and hard until her breath was ragged and her heart was pounding and then he whispered in her ear. “This is real.”
They got up and got dressed. He moved his hands over her skin with every piece of clothing she put on.
“I love you.” He said.
“Mmmmm, forever?” She asked
“Forever.” He answered.
